We believe knowledge is power and our speakers have expertise, knowledge, and inspiration to share with you and your event about combating human trafficking and commercial exploitation.
The following is an overview of recommended guidelines that you should consider when hosting an EFN representative or approved speaker at your event. EFN expects event organizers to:
- Pay a speaker fee. Each speaker will have their own recommended speaking rate based on their level of expertise and experience, the number of sessions, and the length of each session. Special discounted rates may be given to an organization based on the discretion of the speaker.
- Cover all costs associated with the speaker getting to, being at, and leaving your event. These costs will include all travel to and from the event, accommodations at a safe, clean, and comfortable hotel, inn, or guest house, all meals, and other necessary expenses. A detailed breakdown of these costs is available from EFN.
- Provide all technical equipment and supplies associated with the speaker’s session. This can include all audio and visual equipment, furniture and room set-up requirements, and supplies for workshops, among other things. Each EFN speaker will have unique requirements that must be agreed upon by both parties prior to the event.
- Give opportunity for the EFN speaker to promote the work of EFN and if appropriate, their own individual organization or ministry. This includes things such as a place to display banners and printed materials, opportunities to show promotional materials, and distribution of resources.
- Provide clear and timely communication with the speaker prior to, at, and after the event including necessary information about the event, logistical information, expectations about the session, how event materials will be used, feedback to the speaker, and cancellation policies.
More detailed information about these guidelines will be sent to you once we receive a booking request. These guidelines are to ensure you and the speaker have a mutually beneficial experience that helps build a stronger response to human trafficking and combating exploitation.
